Thank you for your interest in our Class offerings! I hope all is well in your world and you are peacefully being in the present moment and joyfully looking ahead to spring. I rather enjoy these grey, dreamy days. I find them to be the perfect reflection of deep-rooted work going on under the soil and in our lives, the dying away of what is no longer vibrant, and the building of energy for the rebirth forthcoming.
I am delighted to announce the classes and workshops for 2016! Grab a cup of tea, kick back and relax, and read through the intro and schedule for this year.
We are ecstatic that the classroom is now open and that we have a new name: Earthwise Learning Center! We will be working on a new website soon, so stay tuned!
As always, the ever popular Basics of Herbal Medicine-Making is on the schedule, and I am also offering a one-day class on the Magic & Medicine of Trees; Plant Communication: The Sacred Language of Plants; and the annual Plant Walk.
Alex Garcia of EarthSkills, llc, and I are teaming up to offer 2 full-day Food & Medicine Plant Walks that I am calling "Take a Walk on the Wild Side!" Visit earthskillsllc.com to see all the class offerings from EarthSkills this year.
This year we have two guest teachers. Phyllis Light is returning in May for a weekend to teach an-depth class on The Power of One: Simples and Taste where we learn to feel the herbs in our bodies and to interpret the taste. Phyllis will also spend a day teaching an intro to Assessment Skills: Reading the Tongue, Face, Hands, Nails. She will also lead a plant walk during the weekend.
It is with much gratitude and joy that I announce that my mentor, teacher, and friend, Matthew Wood, will be here for a weekend in October to teach Shamanic Herbalism: Animal Medicines, Plant Medicines. If you know me, you've heard of Matthew Wood.
We may add another class or two later on, so check back occasionally. I will be teaching at Medicines From the Earth, in Black Mountain, NC again this year! Visit botanicalmedicine.org to register. I will also be presenting at the SCOOL conference again this year. Visit scorganicliving.com for info and to register.
